industries so the trend does actually matter, and the trend favors president obama right now. >> so john, you close it up for me. ohio. you guys are there. it is so important. i mean, people in ohio must feel like the belle of the ball. everybody wants their vote. they have spent so much advertising money. >> they know it. >> if romney loses ohio, john, can he win the election? >> the path is very, very, very difficult without ohio, and that's why the obama camp has made it a fire wall, which is the reversal of political trends in the past. usually ohio is the republican firewall in the election. a couple things, the fact that ohio use unemployment rate is lower than the nation's, very rare, hasn't happened in decades. obama campaign has invested heavily in early voting, president obama had a very significant lead among those voters, so the romney camp is going to be all about election day. that's their -- that's their long ball but it could not be closer. every vote matters here in ohio. both camps doing everything they can to get out their vote on tuesday. >> every vote matters everywh e e
faith that the people are going to do the right thing, that they are going to vote for president obama. they are going to continue to give him four more years and he will continue to heal our nation and he's been a great leader for all of us. >> in 2008 when you extended early voting, governor, you said, i have a responsibility to the voters of our state to ensure that the maximum number of citizens can participate in the electoral process and every citizen can exercise the right to vote. that's what you said when you signed that emergency act. governor, you did it in 2008. governor scott will not do it today. that's why many of us are wondering, is this voter suppression, partisan politics? >> i think it is voter suppression. i think it's ridiculous and unfortunate. my heart bleeds for the people of florida. they ought to have the opportunity to exercise this cherished right to vote. we've got to remember, a lot of people fought very hard for people to have that right. some died for it. we ought to respect that. >> i know you've got to go and introduce the president. thank you for tal
romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
. this october surprise has revealed a surprising new alliance. obama/christie. that's right. just listen to how the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a presid
states right now. first let's go to colorado where a new poll shows president obama and mitt romney are in a dead heat with 48% each. let's go to miguel marquez. he's been watching what's going on. what are you seeing and hearing? >> reporter: i'm hearing it's very much the same as it's always been here in colorado. people really turn between these two candidates. we're in suburban denver right now to figure out what makes these voters tick. >> this is jefferson county, it's one of the most competitive counties in this state. both campaigns are working this county very hard. it's because as little as 20 or 30,000 votes across the entire state of colorado could paint this state red or blue. that's as little as 1% of the overall votes statewide. >> so this is always the scariest bit of this. >> the first step is always the hardest. >> spencer has run apex adventure trips for two years. >> so this is the office. >> true. >> not a bad office. >> i like it. >> business has grown, starting with four guides, he now has 20. this year, the company's biggest. 3,000 trips. everything from pa p
and president obama's re-election looks pretty good right now. if it was a closing argument, what do you think the best closing argument would be for mitt romney right now? i mean, is reaching across the aisle, or should he seriously advocate for some policy that he hasn't been definitive on? >> you know, i think what he's trying to do, he's kind of gone small. this is, he's back to sort of the strategy he had during the republican primary, which is, he just doesn't want to make a mistake. he's trying to run down the clock. >> no interviews. >> that's right. >> i have never seen anything like this. that a guy who wants to be president of the united states has got a media blackout. what else do you major events happening he won't answer any questions but will send his staff to walmart to buy goods to use at an event. what is that? mitt romney's closing argument i think is, i'm just going to try to not make a mistake between now and the election so i'm not going to take any questions, i'm not going to do any interviews. that's not really much of a closing argument message. and, again, think abou
to make key moves in the electorial college vote. right now. goch gov and president obama talking to a rally in ohio and making final pitch in the key swing states. molly has more on that and the rest of the top stories. >> both have packed schedulings. right now gom gom is on the rally to iowa. he start in new hampshire and will end in colorado . president obama will finish up in ohio and head to wisconsin, iowa and virginia. >> fox obtained exclusive information showing that the state department was warned about security concerns about the consulate in lib rabefore the attack. u.s. officials in benghazi came up with a plan to close the consulate and move to the cia annex. it was secretary to secretary of state less than a month before the attack. sound of residents cleaning up will replace the runners in new york city. mayor bloomburg decided to cancel the world's largest mara thon after a outcry from angry residents. they will guarantee their entry for next year's race. >> it is that time of year again. don't forget to set your clocks back tonight. daylight savings is two can l
. i am uma kumarajo. america's news headquarters right now. hello, everybody. we begin with the final push for the white house. governor mitt romney is chris crossing with stops new hampshire and colol and ohio. and president obama also has stops planned in wisconsin and virginia still to go. we have live team coverage over the next two hours and chief white house correspondant edhenry. first governor romney will end his day. >> good afternoon. there is talk on the campaign trail about something that president obama said yesterday when he was in ohio. he does this and said something about governor romney and the audience said don't boo but vote. he talked about senate cand date governor romney was opposed to clinton tax increases. listen to where he took that yesterday. at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of romney. no, no, no. don't boo vote. vote. vote is the best revenge. voting is the best revenge. that is not a thing for the president to say. romney campaign has a new adout that looks as a strange thing for the president to say and an odd reason
the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a significant boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and he won the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor, governor rick scott, decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expand opportunities for voting the way florida's two previous republican governors had done, the new one, republican governor rick scott, decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. tah-dah! long, long, long lines for early voting in polling places across florida. except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures like this from voters who live in florida emp since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. more. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the
few hours. right now, let's go to nashua, new hampshire. president obama has just taken the stage there. the campaign rally is going on. let's listen in. >> that was his philosophy as ceo, his philosophy as governor. as president clinton said he does have a lot of brass. he's not talking about big change, but all he's talking about is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and y'all, governor romney has been out here making last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. says he cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind, governor romney lives a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. [ cheers ] but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he'd fight for jobs and middle class families, but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state and raised tax
it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the
. maybe they support obama, but that's not getting in the car. these rallies where they take you right to a voting place is going to make a difference for president obama. it won't if romney has more votes and wins. it's important to remind the supporters what's at stake and to get them to bank those votes in advance. >> jeff, we are expecting sandy to throw quite the wrench into some campaigning. governor romney shifting his stops tomorrow from virginia to ohio. power outages after the storm could really shift priorities for a lot of swing state voters. how big could the political impact of sandy be? s. >> well, the first thing to think about, since you know i like to do the counterfactual history. what if sandy hit on tuesday november 6th? that would be something that has never happened before, as far as i can tell in american politics. the broader point, if i may, is that the obama campaign, its one advantage even in the midst of the last couple of weeks since the first debate of declining leads is that it's had four years, five, if you count the 2008 campaign, to build a turnout ma
voted for barack obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final day
was right winger and he turned out to be moderate. somebody told him to put it in. clearly it's a obama forces. interesting thing on the democratic side. >> jon: one noted the left was confident that romney would scare the hell out of voters by coming across as, in the words of "new york times" editorialist a strutting warmonger. they started mocking him as peace nik mitt. >> there is definitely indications she shifted positions. alan is right. there were several conflicts that he has taken. it tells you a lot about where the debate is at and how close romney's people think it is. he felt he was going to in gralt iate himself. >> one tweeted, if you had no idea about the race the level of aggression would make you think he is behind. one said the president looked like a challenger with interruptions. >> jon: talk about media assessment. a lot of media paid attention to the body language of these two candidates. there were all kinds of articles written about how they looked and smiled. >> governor romney had this expression on his face the whole time that never maid. >> jon: it's called
on a different show for president obama. >> if you are mitt romney, there's your right hand guy. the guy who was the first to support you, who's been hammering obama on your behalf all year suddenly looking like his best friend. whichever you way you dress this up, this cannot help mitt romney, can it? >> no. the cynic would say, what did mitt romney do in the last couple of weeks to piss governor chris christie off? he didn't have to go the extra ten miles that he went. >> he says the president went the extra mile and his first responsible to the people of new jersey. knowing chris christie as i do, i think he is a straight guy. i like him very much. i think he is a straight talker. i think when he says it he means it. >> i thought he was sincere. >> i saw an interview with him last night, in his hometown devastated, places he grew up and i think he thought, this is not about this election and the president is going the extra mile for me. >> i saw the press conference he conducted and i was impressed with a couple of things he said. he pointed out how after irene a year ago, the hurricane,
on the fronts? jackie deangelis has some of the stats with us. >> that's right, joe. president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie yesterday. the president touring some of the worst hard hit areas of the jersey shore saying 2,000 fema personnel are on the gloupd rou affected states. at least 74 people have died in the u.s. as a result of sandy. most of them from new york and new jersey. still 5.6 million customers in the dark. and it may be ten days before the hardest hit areas sea power restored. more than 19,000 flights were canceled because of sandy, but stranded passengers have something to be thankful for. newark and jfk airports were back in business yesterday and delta and american airlines are scheduled to resume a limited number of flights out of laguardia in about 30 minutes. the mta is also getting back to business with new york city subways offering limited service starting today. the m tcta is waiving all fees until tomorrow. so good news there. >> we're looking for any good news so thank you. the eye of hurricane sandy has hit the jersey shore hard. it wiped a
's right harris. romney campaign believes that obama cam pawn is on defense. and so we see the president trying to really his best got a new adout hitting romney and claims she is flip flopping and then something we haven't heard the president do. talking about the broader tax cut that governor romney talked about and disputing the figures. they talked about that before. this time he zero in on taxes in massachusetts. and a bither joke thrown it. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher gas for milk and higher fees for blund people who neepeded to get a certificate that they were blind . he raised feas for a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me. and the romney camp is pushing back and said the feas were raised to balance the state budget and as governor he cut other taxes. and the romney camp is angry about the birther things and rolling stone mag wreen where the president used profanity to describe romney. this is it a snaul campaign and instead of the president doing uplifting ret ruck. respiratory new hampshire is a small state but beautiful. and the pr
. right now president obama lays out a new vision for what or who his campaign is fighting for. we'll play the latest remarks from the president on the campaign trail. >>> plus, governor romney picks up the tagline he was using before hurricane sandy. the tagline that he is the candidate of change this time around. with five days left, we'll look at why the states the candidates are visiting over the next few days could tell us more than any poll you could read today. >>> and former new mexico governor and obama supporter bill richardson will join me live. we'll talk with him about his thoughts on where the obama campaign stands. >>> plus, rush limbaugh and a few other conservatives are now slamming governor christie, accusing him of aiding the president's electoral chances. does the rapt against christie from some republicans surprise you? it's our "news nation gut check." invest in what i know. invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world
speaking what does rasmussen report? >> we find right now, mitt romney is at 50% and barack obama is at 46 for the last five days romney has been at the 50% mark and had generally a three-point lead inching up a little bit today. something that has been the norm ever since that first presidential debate. romney with a slight lead but nothing he can feel comfortable with. >> geraldo: now, they say romney has the momentum but obama has the math. let's talk about the math the. some states we will be talking about, the battleground states. start with wisconsin, scott. how does the battleground state of wisconsin shape up? >> well, this state could become the new ohio this year. it could become the decisive battleground state. our latest numbers show 49 to 49 in wisconsin. a state where unlike say, ohio, or other parts around the country the republican ground game might actually be better than the democrats and the reason for that, they had all that practice in the scott walker recall election. right now the race is very tight. all four men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wi
the race stand right now? well, a new rasmussen poll of likely voters showing governor romney leading president obama 49% to 47%. now, that is westboun within thn of error. former mississippi governor haley bar bore join barber join. good evening. > >> greta: have you had any further thoughts about the race? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the natio
. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today and yesterday and the day before yesterday, every minute was dedicated to this storm which means it took off of people's minds and took off the front burner obama's bad record with bad results which is why he's losing this election because the american people know w
university of michigan and former chief economist at the obama labor department, and mom to the 3-week-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practica
obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting final few days here. rick, you've been a great asset to us throughout the campaign season. we appreciate you joining us. we'll hear from you once again after tuesday, the big day. rick klein again, our senior washington editor, thanks again, rick. we'll be right back after this. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this. the new color changing candle from air wick, brings light and fragrance together,
. >>> all right. is this week, president obama was asked about one of the crucial issues of election season that didn't surface during any debates. it took jay leno to directly take on theish shy of voter suppression. >> look at this billboard here. look at the billboard. show it. voters will be asked, but not required. that's a billboard i think in colorado. you know, they make it look like you have to have this. but if you read the fine print, you don't really have to. >> it's a problem. >> it's a little scary. >> the justice department handles these cases, so i can't weigh in on a particular state. here is one thing i know, throughout our history, our country has always been stronger when everybody had a voice. it took a long time to make sure the franchise expanded to everybody. we should be thinking of ways to make it easier for people to vote, not make it harder for folks to vote. [ applause ] >> that's why, you know, that's why the early voting is terrific. >> this network specifically talked about it. affects latino voters. john lewis reminded people that legal efforts to block the
ramifications. i'm not sure he is worried about that. >> is it possible for either candidate, president obama or governor romney to win right now without ohio? can either one win without ohio? >> both can. it's a tougher road for romney. romney, if he loses ohio probably has to put some combination of wisconsin and colorado or colorado, iowa and new hampshire, some combination of states. >> greta: it's possible but not so easy. it's not easy at all for romney. he has to thread the eye of the needle to do it. the president has other ways to get there if he loses ohio. >> greta: joe, thank you. coming up the obama administration, did they deliberately mislead americans about libya. that is the question. new poll asks questions. and just when you think you saw every campaign ad. a new campaign ad will make you wonder if there are any limits. that is just two minutes away. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and al
typically. president obama did especially well right here in denver, and i just obscured it with my circling, but up there in boulder county. also pueblo county, he is expected to do well. but the rest of the state, well, what are you seeing in terms of support for mitt romney this time around? >> well, mitt romney's doing really well. you know, last week he had a rally at red rocks where he got, you know, 10,000 people, and then they were turning people away. tried to go see him and paul ryan. this saturday he's got another rally at a big sort of concert arena that holds 18,000 people. the campaign says they're hoping to fill that, they think they're going to fill that. but, you know, last night president obama was in boulder which is a blue area of the state simply trying to get out the vote at this point. i don't think anyone thinks there's that many undecided voters, so they need every single young voter they registered, and there were 10,000 people there. so we're in the middle of crazy time. there's eight rallies in four days between the four vice presidential and presidential candidat
notice that president obama is only going down to florida one time, i believe. >> right. >> so, you know, that's striking. you know, the polling has, i think, generally been slightly pro-romney. so, you know, i don't get the sense that they really think that florida is the best place to be spending their time. they might be writing it off. you know, i think it's really interesting to see wisconsin be such a frequent destination. i believe that romney had not gone to wisconsin for a couple, few months until he went last week or a few days ago. he's going back again. the emphasis on wisconsin right now is interesting. and i think it speaks to the idea that although romney is definitely not giving up on ohio by any means, you know, you do get a sense that they are trying to work these contingency plans. how can we do this without ohio? you know, can we get wisconsin and iowa, you know, you guys have been talking about the ad spending they're doing in pennsylvania and michigan, can they pick off these other states? honestly, i think at the end of the day, it comes down to ohio. and obama has
, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about rising ocean levels and the president's desire to do something about it during his speech in tampa. and so i think mike bloomberg is taking that quite seriously, and even though this isn't been an issue unfortunately in this campaign and even though i think the president cares about this, wants to do something about i
